When Filr Desktop client is installed on a Windows system which has VMWare Mirage installed, the Filr folder appears empty and fails to show files that user has access to.


A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 2.0 Hot Patch 4 and Filr 3.1.1 update, available via the Novell Patch Finder.


The altitude for FilrDriver and VMWare Mirage is the same value (= 370030) which leads to this problem.
